UL and William Henry Merrill Society Matching Campaign

We are excited to announce the establishment of the UL and William Henry Merrill Society Matching Campaign for the SFPE Foundation. This campaign will match donations to the Annual Fund, the Guylène Proulx Scholarship Fund, and the Robert W. Fitzgerald Fund Challenge. Under this matching campaign, UL will contribute up to $25,000 per year for five years by matching contributions made by SFPE members and SFPE chapters. All contributions made by UL under this campaign will be devoted to student research projects related to fire safety. The UL and William Henry Merrill Society Matching Campaign is a great way for SFPE members and chapters to leverage their contributions because when you contribute, your contribution is doubled.
